View Full Version : XBOX Parts in your PC... Help please!

November 28th, 2006, 00:02
Hey guys, well, My XBOX DVD drive is pretty much screwed forever. However, I was wondering if I could take some parts out of my XBOX (honestly, I want the damn video card,) and put them into my PC and possible get them to work with proper drivers. Would this be possible???
Thank you in advance!

Actually, I've heard u can use either the DVD player (I can't,) or the small harddrive... I just want the damn video card tho and I might send off my XBOX to get it fixed... Oh wait, I opened it up already so I guess that's out. I just wanna get that damn video card out and see what I can do with it. Dunno though.

There is no video card in the xbox, at least not like a pc video card. The GPU (aka xbox video card) is attached to the xbox motherboard so there is no way to use it. Even if you were to unsolder it there would be no way to plug it into a pc. You can use the xbox hdd if you unlock it.
